    Foal
    Hi from the Gulf Coast

    Figured I would at least say Hello
    We live in the panhandle with our band of "nutty" Thoroughbreds, with a TWH & AQHA mare thrown in there for good measure. We have always been a small breeding operation - 1 - 2 foals a year for sport or racing. I am a History research nut - love bloodlines and tattoo research; it is a nice mystery waiting to be solved.

    Before our daughter came along I used to show and teach - once she came along family became more important than "outside drama". So we made a move & went back to being a family farm. Though I will also admit it has been nice to be able to reclaim "amateur" status - maybe one day I'll decide to show again for myself. I work full time off the farm now as well which after 10 years of being 100% "on the farm" has been an adjustment.

    We just lost our long-time stallion, and are very grateful that we made the decision to keep a colt from one of our favorite mares a few years ago. So we will wait and see if this colt will grow to fill his sire's shoes and be worthy of the breeding shed.

    For the first time EVER I just sent my colt off to a trainer to be started - life has been busy with a full time career & family that I knew I couldnt give him the time he needed. So I get to be the client for once *lol* my poor trainer who was selected. Thankfully through word of mouth we found a trainer's who actually handles similar to the way I do and I'm excited to make my weekly checks on my boy.

    We are also eagerly waiting for our last foal from our old stallion - his pasture companion was our AQHA mare and she is due with what should be a very nice appendix foal in the next month.

    (Will come back with some pictures in a while...need to upload them first).

    Lets see if these will work (apologize in advance if they are huge)
    Our sweetheart old stallion (we still miss "The Old Man")




    Our 2011 colt (the evening we dropped him off to the trainer's barn) - "little guy is going through ANOTHER growth spurt... he is already a hair under 16 hands at 2 years)


    Had those where I could find them....
